Unbeknownst to Hip Hop

It was a rough week for me Hip Hop Heads but I’m back in good health and blogging! This coming Tuesday is Super Tuesday and those of us who live in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia need to go out and vote. Now what’s funny is several of these states changed the date of their primary elections so I’m sure some people did not know that so they may not be able to vote due to being away or getting their registration information out too late. Unbeknownst to us things like this happen all the time in politics and the music industry can mirror those same ignorant ideals and values. Who wants to vote in a system that they don’t think is working? Same with the Oscars and the Grammys, Black-Americans don’t exercise their vote as much as their non-minority counterparts do and if they did maybe things would be a little different.

This is the country we live in believe it or not. This is a country that will work against you in silence just to keep an old and for lack of a better word, disturbing mentality alive. They don’t want to open up their doors to us because unbeknownst to some of us they’ve been picking what they like about our culture and not only claiming it as their own but now they are popularizing and appropriating in the process. Kylie Jenner’s attempt to hijack Black Chyna’s image, coupled with Khloe choosing her image as a blend of Amber Rose and Rapper, Trina, and Kim scoring the ultimate get by having children by a “popular” Black guy is pretty much the blueprint on how to do things these days. Trying to look and act like a Black woman is all the rage! Fake thick thighs, fake small waists, fake full lips, and fake hips are making all white women look the same. Non-Blacks only want to be Black until something goes down.

No Kardashian/West/Jenner is doing anything for #BlackLivesMatter that I’ve heard of and you know for a fact that if they had it’d be on that little show of theirs. Unbeknownst to us society in this country has been doing this which is why there are corrupt police departments and other agencies that lack people of African heritage; because they’ve been working in silence against us all these years. Just because a few of us make it doesn’t mean we are in the clear. Slaves just wanted to be free, freed slaves wanted equal rights, and unbeknownst to us we’ve never had equal rights. So right now with the way the revolution is going we are on the brink of major changes to come in our country but what makes you think that the next leader of the free world will be making changes to make a viable impact on your own community? Because unbeknownst to them we are in the midst of the now “televised” revolution but don’t think that the powers that be aren’t meeting somewhere right now, unbeknownst to us, about how to fight against us.
